The Sydney Morning Herald’s Lance Richardson ​reports on six rundown city block properties in Miami Beach that an Argentine entrepreneur is set to transform into a neighbourhood of fountains and palm trees.

Melbourne’s Alto on Bourke, the city’s only carbon-neutral hotel, supplies honey at breakfast from its rooftop hives.

And gardening writer Robin Powell, like many others, is enamoured of the 25-storey high supertrees at Singapore’s ​Gardens by the Bay which are “partly covered with a façade of green wall plantings of incredible diversity”.

There are plans for Sydney’s Double Bay to have a rooftop cinema at the council car park and, of course, the city’s highest vertical green wall is maturing at Sydney’s Central Park.
